Pregnancy can be one of the most exciting times in our
lives; yet, it can also be one of the most stressful. From physical changes
like your growing belly to feeling anxious about labor and delivery to worrying
about how life will change with a newborn, stress can impact us at any point
While stress is very common during pregnancy, too much of it
can make it more difficult to eat properly and get the right amount of sleep
and rest that you and your baby need.
The best way to manage pregnancy related stress is to build
your toolbox with stress busting coping techniques. See the What To Do section
for tips on ways to keep stress levels low and nip it in the bud when it rears
